Observation

This question was not popular among the candidates. The (a) aspect of the question that demanded a sketch map of Africa was poorly handled by most of the candidates that attempted it. The location of the minerals
were also poorly done leading to the loss of precious marks. The (b) part of the question that demanded for the contribution of minerals to the development of Africa was correctly answered by most of the candidates that attempted the question.
